Nicole Kidman recently dished to The Evening Standard of the importance of living a regret-free life. When asked about how her marriage to husband Keith Urban differs from that of ex-husband Tom Cruise, she even admitted to harboring no regrets of that first marriage.

“Any time you have a chance at something again is good, but each combination of people is different,” Kidman said. “I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don’t regret any of it. But out of respect for Keith I tend not to discuss any of that now.”

Nicole Kidman was just 23 when she married Tom Cruise. The two met on the set of 1990's Days of Thunder. Kidman and Cruise adopted two children--Isabella is 22 and Connor is 20--and divorced in 2001.

Since Tom Cruise is a member of the Church of Scientology, and Nicole Kidman wasn't, she lost contact with her children for quite some time. During Leah Remini's recent defection from Scientology, Kidman served as her "guardian angel."

It was five years later that the Photograph 51 star wed Keith Urban. They have two daughters. Sunday Rose is seven and Faith Margaret is four.

It wasn't long ago that Nicole Kidman admitted the years following her divorce from Tom Cruise were among her loneliest.

“To be completely honest, I was running away from my life at that time,” she said. “As an actor, the wonderful thing is you can become something else for a time. Out of that came work that was applauded so that was an interesting thing for me.”

Very happy in her marriage to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman thanked him when she received the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress for her role in Photograph 51.

“I will love you until the end of my life,” she told him.

Even though Nicole Kidman says she has no regrets regarding her marriage to Tom Cruise, most of her fans would likely say she seems much happier since marrying Keith Urban.

It's actually wonderful to see the new life the two of them have made together--along with their daughters.
